Subject: What Shot of the New Orleans Superdome???
Subject: What does this have to do with President Bush?
Just what does this film have to do with
New Orleans or hurricanes or President Bush?
I thought that this "Review" feature was meant to review the films and not to be used by mentally-challenged individuals who have some kind of anti-American agenda.
Who-ever you are down below, get a life.
If you are so angry about President Bush,
why don't you leave this country-find a better
one, maybe Iran or North Korea.

I was a kid in New Hampshire at the time and recall a bit of a buzz going around that our state was going to be featured on TV that night. I don't remember anything else about the show.
What's depressing is that these spots were probably the only ones that aired during the whole show. Even with a two-minute station break, that's only six minutes of commercials. Things certainly have changed.
In response to the review below, I think you may be reviewing the wrong commercials.
New Orleans is not featured in any of these commercials, and they were produced in 1970, a year before construction on the Superdome began.
